Greetings from over the fence! We are thinking of you all and missing seeing your faces at school and in the parking lot. This is a really difficult time for all of us and everyone is experiencing this pandemic in their own way. We want to let you know that your parent club is here for you and wants to offer support and help. Please reach out and connect if you want to talk or be connected to resources in the community. Lets replace the term the term "social distancing" with "physical distancing"

Resources for Parents
As a school and district, we are committed to actively contributing to the healing and repair that is desperately needed in response to systemic racism. We strive to be a safe and inclusive community, which means we must disrupt racism and support our Black and African American students and families, as well as our community of color, and all members of our community. We have appreciated the partnership of parents during distance learning and as it concludes this week, we know there are critical conversations still to be had and much to be learned in the days and weeks ahead. As we all continue to learn our way forward, we hope for peace and safety for all, we watch for opportunities to listen and learn, we take action for positive change, and we trust that our future will be brighter than our past if we all work to build it together. Parents play the most important role in shaping their children's lives. We have included here some resources for you, should you need or want them. Thank you for the important role you play in the life of your child and the future of our community and world.
